Better Late Than Never

Though I was busy caring for Wrigley post-surgery and didn’t get to commemorate it, April 27, 2018 marked a major anniversary – it made five years since my very first post here at Little House by the Ferry!

And though I’m terribly late, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to thank everyone who reads and follows this blog.

In the beginning, Little House by the Ferry was really just intended as a way to update our close family and friends about the progress of our Fish Hooks restoration.

But as Tom and I learned more about the history of the house and of Green Turtle Cay, I wanted to share what we had uncovered.

Blogging here resulted in my writing Those Who Stayed. And, earlier this year, some of my favourites of the gazillions of photos I’ve taken for the blog found their way into the Little House by the Ferry product line of home decor, stationery and gift items (which make excellent Christmas gifts for the Abaco lover on your gift list… hint, hint.)

To date, more than 258,795 people have visited Little House by the Ferry, and I’ve had more than 677,211 page views. Over the past five years, I’ve posted 1,941 times.

So, in case I haven’t said it lately, THANK YOU! For reading, following and commenting on this blog. For sharing it with others.

For contacting me with your questions and comments. For sending in your reader photos (please keep sending them!) and for helping me identify the faces in mine.

If you’re on social media, I hope you’ll drop by and say hello there as well. Here’s where you can find me:

Thank you again, and here’s to our next five years together!

Our Junkanoo Wedding - Green Turtle Cay, Abaco, Bahamas - May 19, 2007

Ten years ago today, Tom and I were married at Gillam Bay on Green Turtle Cay. During the wedding planning, I mentioned that I’d like to somehow incorporate the Bahamian tradition of Junkanoo. Tom suggested that we have a group of Junkanoo performers escort my Dad and me up the aisle.

What an amazing experience to be led into married life by colourfully costumed dancers and traditional drums, whistles and cowbells!

Thanks to all of the performers who helped make our wedding so special, and thank you to Tom for a wonderful first decade.
